Well,
looks like the mopeds will outnumber Bulldog's numbers in the next few years unless they they outlaw them or have a m/c ticket to operate the recter set contrapions.
Watching them going down the road is a ticket to the skull orchard for the dumb ass!!!
Who should feel sorry for them for running the stop signs or intersections??

Fuel prices I bet have a LOT to do with the increase.

I think it has more to do with the "baby boomers" having disposable income and wanting a toy. It's amazing to me how many white collar workers have Harleys these days.

Fuel prices have only been high for about the last 15 months. Look at the trend - it started well before then.

Bottom line there is more demand for motorcycles. You see them on the street and then start thinking. Then you part with your cash and add to the bottom line of the factories.
